1 O God, why have you rejected us forever?
Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?
2 Remember the nation you purchased long ago,
the people of your inheritance, whom you redeemed—
Mount Zion, where you dwelt.
If you fall into sin, quickly seek God’s forgiveness. His mercy may come quickly, and His anger may leave quickly. If you persist in sinning against God, do not be surprised when His patience runs out.
